Now I see why socialism doesn't work: It violates the laws of physics -- or
so claims an article in New Scientist this week.
Here's the article's abstract: "Every country in the world has a few rich
people and then a long tail of poorer and poorer people. In fact, not only
does a filthy-rich minority always hog most of the wealth, but the
mathematical form of the distribution is the same everywhere. . . .
Somebody documented this a hundred years ago.
Forget who. My memory says Italian . . .
CB: Couldn't be that capitalism has objective laws of development that can be rendered
with " the exactness of a natural science", could it ?
